Earl 'Fatha' Hines

Earl 'Fatha' Hines revolutionized jazz piano in the 1920s, forming a trailblazing partnership with Louis Armstrong. After stints as a bandleader and sideman, he came roaring back to solo eminence in the 1960s, astonishing a new generation with his gifts. Geoffrey Smith surveys a remarkable career.
